Lessons Learned #7

December 26th, 2013

Here is the seventh best thing I learned last year:

Great Words – When our son left for college, I started texting him a motivational quote each class day. He never mentioned receiving them; yet, the first time I missed – five weeks later – he texted, “No quote?” I fulfilled this commitment 62 out of 75 days before he returned home for the holidays. These are my favorites:

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” ~ Maria Robinson

“Mister, when you read Shakespeare, Shakespeare’s not on trial. You are.” ~ Justice Antonin Scalia, quoting his sophomore high school English teacher, Jesuit priest Tom Matthews

“Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.” ~ Voltaire
